Chorizo and White Bean Soup

  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 3/41 pound chorizo*
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 quart chicken or vegetable broth*
  • 3 (14.5oz) cans white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (28oz) or 2 (14.5oz) cans diced fire-roasted tomatoes (don’t drain)
  • 1/41/3c minced cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • queso fresco or cotija cheese, crumbled*


  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, brown chorizo over medium heat until cooked through. Remove chorizo and drain any fat from the pot. Add onion, celery, and carrot to pan and saute over medium heat until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Return chorizo to pot and add chicken broth, beans, and tomatoes and their juices. Simmer at least 30 minutes, up to 2 hours. Add additional water or chicken broth to pot if necessary.
  2. Right before serving, stir in cilantro. Taste soup and add salt and pepper to taste. Top with additional cilantro and queso fresco.


*Gluten and dairy free notes: Be sure your chorizo and broth are gluten free. I love Pacific Organic brand. For dairy free, just skip the cheese garnish.
